Today I turned off my pebble watch. Â It has been placed in my “history of tech” pile. Â I loved the smartwatch concept since Kickstarter made headlines with the Pebble. Â When I (eventually) got the watch I was pleasantly surprised with the look and the basic functionality. Â After the recent OS upgrade, it felt like a new watch, with much more features and use cases. Â Â However, the connectivity with iOS always sucked for me. Â To this day notifications passed phone/text were very hit and miss. Starting a run and wondering if the Runkeeper App would work irritated. Â I tried full re-installs and full application rebuilds but I could never say “it just worked” for me. Â And in this day and age “it just works” is the norm for consumer tools. Â Â So, thank Â you Pebble for upping the game. Â I’m excited to see Motorola’s announcements today and what is to come from apple but I think this is where we end our journey.
